Shame about the two deaths. At least one died in the best way a dwarf could die
The other just drowned

"No"

Sadly, he didn't drown in booze.  Now that would have been the best way for a dwarf to die.

Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
Ok, little housekeeping update with some info regarding my plans for the Armed Citizen Initiative.

The Armed Citizen Initiative is exactly what it sounds like: I want every adult dwarf in Peakwind carrying a weapon, and some light armor as well. All citizens will be organized into squads and do a little weapon training for one month out of the year. Of course, there will be a standing full-time military, and I'm willing to set up a part-time crossbow militia for any dwarves that want to serve Peakwind, but don't want to be full-time soldiers.
----

So here's what I'm thinking- there will be a few different equipment "classes" for the non-military citizens of the fort.

A) Basic: Melee weapon, Chain shirt, Buckler. This class covers everybody not specifically mentioned below, and will be the most common assignment by far.

B) Medium: Melee weapon, Cap, Chain shirt, Gauntlets, Leggings, Low boots, (Buckler). This class is for Miners and Woodcutters, who are more likely to be exposed to hostiles or accidents. Middleweight armor will improve survivability without drastically hurting mobility. Miners need two hands for their pick and cannot use a shield.

C) Heavy: Melee weapon, Helm, Chain shirt, Breastplate, Gauntlets, Greaves, High boots, (Shield). This is effectively full military-grade protection, and will only be assigned to very swift and strong civilians who would otherwise qualify for Medium kit. I don't expect to give out many of these outfits, if any.

So, here's what I want from the rest of y'all: Your weapon preference, and if you want to be a part of the militia. Crossbows are incompatible with secondary weapons, unfortunately, so for organization's sake it would be easiest if you chose one or the other. I won't be assigning non-Miner, non-Woodcutter dwarves armor heavier than Basic class without a clear request for it. Even then, I may not approve such a request if a dwarf is not well-suited to the extra encumberance.



Now, did you put me into this LP as well? and as what? :o
Yeah, sorry about that. Your request to join must've gotten lost in the shuffle. Be sure to gimme some ideas for desired labors!

I'd love to be a Armorer or Weaponsmith, or whatever the game calls them(if not combined into 1 labor)

Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
I'd like to put in my name for a Miner, and by extension a Medium/Broadsword loadout whenever you get a dwarf free. :P

 
Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
Unless they changed it, Miners use their picks as their weapons.  And attacking with a pick uses the Mining skill, which Miners tend to have really high scores in for some reason. :P

Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
That's what I get for not playing the game long enough to make/use weapons in any regular capacity.

A non-miner, then. :P

 
Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
No no, experienced dwarven miners are brutal in combat since they have massive skill with their weapon and picks have insane armor penetration values since they're all sharp and pointy.  Not much can stop a party of angry dwarven miners on a rampage.

I want to volunteer for crossbow duty. I can't recall if I've been reincarnated yet though.

Gimme a crossbow please. And considering that this incarnation of me is female, I request that my nickname be "Sniper-Dorf"
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
i will point out now that that way is fraught with dangers of permanently non-working citizens, iffy weapon/armor assignments (you're going to have problems getting them to equip the damn things reliably) and i'd also drag out the bug reports supporting me, but too sleepy right now.

Ho, ho, ho, to the bottle I go
to heal my heart and drown my woe!
Rain may fall and wind may blow,
and many miles be still to go,
but under a tall tree I will lie!
